  •  This is why I made a "unitary" decision :) ... (6+ / 0-)

    ...just for tonight, namely that the loser stories would not be about the people posting here (normal SNLC-netiquette), but about election-related phenomena that is worth noting.

    •  I just had to say. (9+ / 0-)

      I am so proud to be a Democrat this week I"m almost bursting.

      I will always vote Dem, but this election was all about the soldiers for me.  The Marine Corp was my father's whole life, even though his time in war ruined the plans he had - to be an artist after his professional boxing career was over.  The wounds he suffered acquiring his third Purple Heart effectively ended both dreams.  

      My love for him, the family and friends I lost to Vietnam, and my four sons have caused me to hate war with such an overwhelming passion that I cannot concern myself with anything else while we have troops in Iraq.  

      As my father's daughter, I understand the need for military force on occassion, but my respect for the military makes me aware of how unforgivable it is too abuse them.  And Iraq is the ultimate abuse.
